EIA assembles a team of executive consultants to implement pro bono projects for their nonprofit grant recipients.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 30, 2014
The North Texas nonprofit Executives In Action (EIA) is launching its second round of grant applications for the 2014 calendar year. The grants are designed to assemble a team of executive consultants to implement pro bono projects to the nonprofit grant recipient. EIA aids in strengthening grant recipients’ organizations so that the number of lives they touch can grow exponentially. In turn, a transformational impact is made on the organization, the members it serves, the executive volunteers and the community as a whole. Nomination forms are available online at http://www.executivesinaction.org and must be submitted by November 14 at 5 p.m.
“We are excited to learn about the nonprofits who apply for the EIA grant this fall and partnering with them to build capacity in their organization,” EIA Director of Grants and Programs Andrea White said. “Many of the grant projects involve sustainability and becoming more efficient. Since we began this program we have seen nonprofits grow exponentially with the help of our executive partners and we’re proud to say they are able to maintain this growth. ”
In selecting the fall 2014 grant recipients, EIA will lean on its areas of focus for selection criteria: Children & Families, Culture & Humanities, Education, Health & Well-being and Social Services. The pro bono projects are designed to build on past successes and focus resources and executive teams to projects with local community partners that will build an organization’s capacity to better serve its mission and the community.
Not only does EIA strive to achieve transformational impact within the nonprofits it partners with, but also in the lives of the executive volunteers. EIA Executive Chuck Roundtree has engaged with EIA on a number of projects, gaining a newfound perspective on servant leadership and community.
“Service has become a normal part of my routine and I have EIA to thank for that,” Roundtree said. “EIA not only helped me see value in what I had to offer during a challenging moment in my life but more importantly EIA taught me the true value and joy in giving and serving others in our community. It has transformed my life forever.”
